Menu Plan Monday

Monday, February 26th, 2007

Happy Monday! This is going to be a busy day (as usual). We just started Izzy’s new programme pretty much Sunday evening because it took that long to get the swing mounted to her therapy room ceiling and fix her bed to elevate for rolling… fun stuff. Anyway, she did well and I am excited to see what changes start happening in the next few days, weeks, months, … We have hippo therapy today at 1:00 p.m. Izzy loves riding Opie the horse and it is such a great therapy. Okay, I guess it’s time to plan a menu huh?

Taco chicken casserole, green beans, rolls


beans, potatoes, and cornbread

Spaghetti, corn, french bread


Chinese carryout! (my favorite)

Beef Gyro Recipe

1/2 c. beef broth

2 T. Olive Oil

1 garlic clove (minced or pressed)

1/2 t. salt

1/2 t. oregano

dash pepper

1 pound boneless beef sirloin cut into strips

2/3 c. cucumber ranch dressing

1 t. sugar

gyro style pitas, or flatbread

2 c. chopped lettuce

1 c. chopped tomato

1 small cucumber, peeled and sliced

1 small red onion, sliced

In large resealable bag, combine first six ingredients, seal and refrigerate up to 24 hours.

In small bowl, combine salad dressing and sugar, refrigerate until serving. Drain and discard marinade. In large nonstick skillet saute beef for 3-4 minutes or until no longer pink. Serve on pitas with lettuce, tomato, cucumber and onion. Drizzle with dressing.

Taco Chicken

. 5 medium chicken breasts, boiled and slivered

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 can rotel tomoatoes

1 medium onion

1 bell pepper

2 cups of shredded sharp chedder cheese

1 large bag of plain doritoes

Boil chicken, sliver it in medium chunks. Mix all canned ingredients in large bowl. Dice onion and pepper and add to mixture. Add half the cheese and mix well. Layer the bottom of a casserole dish with doritoes, then add a layer of chicken, then mixture, then cheese, do this two times, ending with cheese, you can add more cheese if you like. Bake at 375 degrees F. for about 45 minutes or until cheese is bubbly

One great things is I have the taco chicken made in the freezer, and the gyros are marinated and also in the freezer so several days will be easy as a breeze! I hope you have a great week!

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

“You have a Midland accent” is just another way of saying “you don’t have an accent.” You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.
